I know we will not be able to afford everybody on this list and some of this might be a little inaccurate but to my knowledge we have 47-52 but ive heard up to 60milion, for the sake of this article ill say 50mil this offseason and it should be spent smartly since every team required to actually spend 89 percent of the unadjusted cap number whatever that means. But quick roster check: QB: luck and Stanton RB:Vick Ballard, Donald Brown, Delone Carter, Robert Hughes deji karim, Mewelde Moore WR:Donnie Avery LaVon Brazill Austin Collie T.Y.

Austin Collie, Jerraud Powers, a.j adds. fili moala, joe reitiz, seth olsen Lets get my insight quick here with whom we should keep then ill post a list of all the notiable F/as that can help our team, ill ethir put DROP or the amount i think they should get: Avery (2yrs 4mil) Butler (2YRS 3MIL) Fokou (DROP) Cliftion (drop) Josh ( 1yr500k) Mario (DROP) Justin(DROP) Tony(DROP) Antonio (Paycut 1.5mil) Winston (demote to backup 1mil) Deji (keep for ST 500k) Jeff (drop) Pat (10mil 5yrs) Moore (DROP) Matt (keep 750k) Drew Stanton (drop nd bring up harnish from PS) Martin (drop) Cassius(DROP!) jammall (2yrs 1.5mil) A.Q (1yr 400k) Dwight ( Drop he'll cost to much, unless he comes back for 3milish) Collie (drop) Powers (15mil 4yrs) a.j (500k) Moala (2yrs5mil) joe (1yr600k) Seth(1yr400k) These signings add up to about 16mil Also kill the contracts of: D.brown, brazil, & williams gives $2.5 extra and i know this is gonna hurt but drop adam V. and that will free up another 2mil for a total of 4.5 saved, lets getta rookie kicker ive seen great success with rookie kickers this year. $36.5 to spend on F/a's heres a list of whats needed after resignings and drops: All postions needed 1-2 W/r (1 starter and backup) - 1OT( decent starter) 1OG (we should just have a good starter) NT (a real one to stop the run) 1-2CB( good ones) 1ROLB (starter) 1-2 inside LB( one to start) 1RB (maybe a good one) Notable F/a's per postion RB's--- Peyton Hillis Chris Ivory Rashard Mendenhall Javon Ringer W/R--- bowe or jennings Mike Wallace Devery Henderson Domenik Hixon Emmanuel Sanders victor cruz OT-----Long, clady, or brandon Albert Sam Baker Jermon Bushrod Jason Smith Center----Todd McClure Jeff Faine Gaurds- Chilo Rachal or Andy Levitre Louis Vasquez Brandon Moore DL - Henry Melton Terrance Knighton Randy Starks Alan Branch Jason Jones Israel Idonije Corey Williams Shaun Cody Sedrick Ellis Isaac Sopoaga DL Trevor Scott LB's--Paul Kruger Connor Barwin rey Maualuga Paris Lenon Daryl Smith Erin Henderson Frank Zombo Keith Rivers Larry Foote Shaun Phillips DeAndre Levy DB's- DRC, Pat chung, Leodis McKelvin Jairus Byrd Sam Shields Rashean Mathis Derek Cox Aqib Talib Stevie Brown Antoine Cason Kyle Arrington Tracy Porter Mike Jenkins Charlie Peprah Cary Williams D.J. Moore PEOPLE WHO COULD BE CUT BY OTHER TEAMS DUE TO CAP PROBLEMS AND WHAT THIER EXPECTED TO BE PAID IN 2013: DL--- Jonathan Babineaux($6mil) Ray Edwards(6mil), DL Domata Peko ($3.7) DL Elvis Dumervil ($12)DL Antonio Smith ($6)DL Tyson Jackson ($14.72)DL Tommy Kelly ($6.5)DL Will Smith ($10) RB---- DeAngelo Williams ($4.75) RB Chris Johnson ($10)“Beanie” Wells ($1.1575 OT-- Jordan Gross ($8.7) OT Doug Free ($7) DB--- Chris Gamble ($7.9)DB Terrell Thomas ($750k + $6 option + $1.5 roster)DB Antrel Rolle ($7 + $250k workout)DB Corey Webster ($7 million)DB Michael Huff ($8)DB Nnamdi Asomugha ($15, $4m guarnte)DB Carlos Rogers ($5.5 + $250k bonus + $100k workout)DB DeAngelo Hall ($7.5)DB Josh Wilson ($3.9)DB Roman Harper ($5.25)DB Jason Allen ($4.1?)DB Kerry Rhodes ($4.5, voidable)DB Dunta Robinson ($8, $3 guar.) LB--- D.J. Williams ($6)LB A.J. Hawk ($4.9 + $300k roster bonus)LB Curtis Lofton ($1.1 + $5m roster bonus, base guar.)johnathon vilma (6mil)LB Thomas Davis ($4.25 + $500k option)LB Jon Beason($5.25) TE Jermichael Finley ($4.45 + $3.5m roster bonus) OG Chris Snee ($6.45) WR Sidney Rice ($8.5) Some of these people will obviously not be cut but i think 50% will. So we have 36.5 left to spend lets see who i think we should waste that money on: RB: I think we should sign Peyton hillis at RB he had a bad season with KC and was paid 1 year 3 mil there so i think we can get him for somthing like that: 4yrs 10mil = 2.5 per year------ Or chris ivory for the same price tag. W/R: if you go back to last year VJAX signed a 5 year 55mil deal mainly because he was the best w/r on the market and that market sucked so we shouldnt base it off that. brandon marshal and Andre Johnson average 9mil per year and marcus colsten gets 7per year none of the 4 top w/r on the block deserve it, Bowe and wallace both have attitude problems but its extremly unlikely that they will be franchised becuase the tender on wallace last year and bowe had the tag the year before, and green bay already announced jennings is unlikly to be brought back, but cruz is likely to get tagged.So this leaves us with 3, and my judgment says mike wallace the 26 year old should get 6 years 42 mil = 7per year OT- this depends on what happens with the panthers id love jordan gross for maybe 2yrs 8mil but they have to cut him for that but hes 33 years old and cost a lot so its possible, otherwise jason smith as a back up plan at RT for 1yr 1.5mil. OG- face it buffalos ethir gonna franchise byrd or Adam, its gonna be to hard to tell so id say Louis Vasquez from SD he gets injured often so he shuldnt cost a pretty penny im thinking 5 years 18 mil= 3.6 per year..... and if he doesnt work out Brandon Moore who will be 33 by next season and he makes 2.7 mil now and hes getting older so its less. so im thinkin 2yrs-5mil= 2.5mil a year LB-- Paul Kruger Connor Barwin i want them both. Paul Kruger gets 6yrs- 27.5 mil = 4.5mil LB2- Connor Barwin hes very good so ill see 7yrs 35mil= 5mil, this seems a little low for an average salary for these two but think of this lance briggs makes a lil over 5 mil per year, while shaun phillips averages 4.40 a year these are two huge names LB's and james harrison only makes 6.7 mil and he was a top LB CBs--- one guy and he'll be cheap Rashean Mathis 1 year 2 mil should do it, or Sam Shields and id give him the same deal as jarraurd powers, 15mil-4 years- 3.75 or we can afford both, rashean is all we need to be a playoff team or vonte, shields, powers and butler are a very good 4 cbs S--- reading much about the market value of safteys this season its pretty low because of the many on the market this year and an example of a good saftey Thomas DeCoud, FS, Falcons 5 years, $17.5 ---- thts what he was paid last year, and mock drafts have us getting a saftey in the first round so how about we get patrick chung whos equivalant to thomas and just as young for roughly the same price 5yrs 18mil = 3.6 per year AND if we got pat chung. we can cut tom zib which frees more money$$ after all my blabing the high smount is 34mil added up from all these aquisitions making us still have 2.5 left plus whatever the cap growth is this year the only postion i wasnt able to address was DL but we should be able to do that in the draft i mean if we want we can probably afford Corey Williams to a small deal and draft a great End in the 1st. But what do you guys like about my offseason predictions it took mad long lol.
